Obituary

Charles Johnson, 74, died in his home here Sunday after a long illness. He was the son of Levi Johnson of Bernardston. Mrs. Johnson, his mother, died when the boy was very young and he was adopted by Israel Johnson of this town, where he spent most of his life. Besides his wife, he leaves six children and 20 grandchildren. Mr. Johnson was a veteran of the Civil War, enlisting in Company E, 11th Vermont Regiment, and was mustered into service July 21, 1862, serving until June 24, 1865, when he was mustered out. He was a prosperous farmer, a kind, obliging neighbor and was respected by all. The funeral was held in the home Wednesday, Rev. A.E. Phelps officiating. The burial took place in the Tyler cemetery.
